For 30 years, Aunt Leah’s Place has been helping children in foster care and young mothers achieve a better future by providing guidance, supported housing, job training and coaching on essential life skills.
In 2013, recognizing the need for more housing options, Aunt Leah’s launched Aunt Leah’s Foundation for the purpose of acquiring housing that could be made available to new mothers and young people as they age out of care.
New mothers and young people leaving foster care at age 19 often find themselves completely alone and unable to secure affordable housing. The mission of Aunt Leah’s Foundation is to provide an affordable, safe place where these young people can transition into independent living.
Most of the housing owned by Aunt Leah’s Foundation, is leased to Aunt Leah’s Place which provides all the programs and the housing support services. Please visit http://auntleahs.org for more information on their programs.
Opening of the New Aunt Leah’s House Marks its 35th Anniversary!
In February 2013, the newly rebuilt Aunt Leah’s House is set to welcome vulnerable women and their babies once again.
Aunt Leah’s Foundation announced the completion of its most recent social purpose housing project, the rebuilding of the original Aunt Leah’s House. Operated by Aunt Leah’s Place, since the 1980’s, Aunt Leah’s House has been a safe haven for young moms (often in foster care themselves) and their babies to ensure families remain together and not separated by the child welfare system.
